NEEDLES FEATURES

ENOVA® - Developed with high performances 300 series stainless steel, for exclusive surgery

A suture usually comprises a thread and a single needle, which is the most conventional form. The needle is an essential component as it is the first part to pass through the tissues and conditions the success of the suturing, to a certain extent. The needle consists of 3 parts: point, body and curvature. Each of these features has to be carefully identified for the purpose of making the best choice, that is, for choosing the most appropriate needle for the patient and the type of surgery involved.

Suturex & Renodex offers a wide range of needles made from 300 stainless steel alloy: more than 2 500 types that are indication-specific and also 'tailor-made to surgeons' preferences.

All the ENOVA® needles offer the most advanced technology, leading to an excellent result due to:

Excellent tissue penetration
Sharpness after multiple stitches
High stability passing through tissue
High bending strength resistance
Excellent grip to the needle holder
